I have spent most of my life in Wisconsin, growing up in a small town on the banks of the Mississippi. I moved to California in the summer of 2010, landing in Los Angeles in October of that year. I recently spent some time with family back in the Madison area of Wisconsin, and have been subleasing from friends since I've been back in L.A., while I save up for my own place to call home. I currently work full-time days during the week and volunteer as a mentor for kids and adolescents some early evenings and weekends. My degree is in English, and my joys are photography, writing, live music in small venues, great conversation, walks, runs, hikes, road trips, time with family and friends, and happiness. I am a quiet, clean roommate, with references I am happy to share.
